Anyone else noticed extra marks appearing in the wing mirror puddle lights? Noticed the other day both lights projecting a bit weird now...

At first I thought was maybe water inside the mirror getting on the Cupra logo lens but after few days they still look exactly the same.

Im guessing will need to get booked into the dealer to take a look.

That's really strange looking. Had my Born end of November and mine are normal. Please let us know if you find out what it is. MY first guess was water or maybe the film that creates the Cupra logo has become distorted somehow.

This has appeared several times in the German forum. Definitely a warranty issue.

looks like the lens filter has deteriorated. New light required as I doubt they will have the lens filter as a individual part. Warranty should cover it fine.

I love the Cupra puddle lights, much better than the Renault logo the iD.3 has!

Mine has just started to have the same issue. Will see if I can get it fixed under warranty.

Both of mine have already been replaced by the dealer under warranty.

Mine's going in on the 17th for a replacement. I already complained about them about half a year ago.... waited 3 months for an appointment and they said that it was water ingress, which wasn't covered under warranty because of "damage marks to the mirror". One in depth study of my mirrors later, there is literally no damage marks to the mirrors at all, car dealerships are lovely aren't they 😡

Totally going to go and knife my mirrors just for the heck of it 🙄

Anyway after complaining to Cupra HQ... they did the usual patronizing spiel, a few hours later I got an apologetic phone call from the guys supervisor, and they booked it in for a second look straight away 😄

It's only the third time it's been in to fix countless warranty issues, not sure I'd go for VAG again

Another set of puddle lights gone here as well now.

I'll have to get it booked in at some point, but it's only 18 months old, so might just wait to have it done when I get the first service done.
